For readers who loved the previous books in the Truth Series, Jackson is a must read.
Jackson is a spin-off of The Truth Series by Elaine May and it can be read as a standalone.
Jackson’s premise was a good one, the mystery surrounding Kitty’s pulled me like a magnet. I needed to know what happened to her that night. Did I have theories? Yes, but Ms. May managed to make doubt about them a little bit.
Tragedy hit Kitty’s family leading them to move away from her first home. Little did she know this misfortune will lead to another one. A bigger one. A tragedy with the power to destroy not only her life but the life of her loved ones.
Kitty & Jackson were just 5 and 6 years old when they met. The friendship between them was immediate. And with they years, it became stronger. Theirs was the kind of friendship that had the potential to turn into something else. And it did, but none of them was brave enough to cross that boundary.
“Sometimes he heart just wants what it doesn't know.”
“And sometimes the hart knows exactly what it wants.”
At some point, it was impossible to hide their feelings for each other. They took the chance. And they thought their happily ever after was around the corner. But again, shit happened and like a ducking hurricane ripped through Kitty’s life, destroying her future and dreams.
I feel like Jackson should have been done MORE. I know he was young but he had the means to do more and what he did? Thinking of her wasn't going to bring her back. So, that was something that didn't work for me.
Some years later, Kitty is back in town. Will their love survive? And will be enough to fight Kitty’s demons or will she let her secret destroy her chance to happiness?
I enjoyed the switch between past and present in the book. It did help me understand better what was going on there but at the same time I felt like it took to much from the story that the ending felt rushed. The prologue kind of made me feel better but still… I would have loved for the author to develop more their present than their past.
If you enjoy friends to lover romance you may like to give Jackson a chance.
On a side note, that Sneak Peak has me INTRIGUED. So, Jacob hurry up!!
The plot goes from past to present from the moment Jackson and Catherine also known as Kitty first meet as children and how even then a bond and connection was formed between them.
The present day is Kitty returning to her home town after two years away following a night she disappeared without trace leaving a heartbroken Jackson.
The childhood years in the story showed Jackson being Kitty's everything, her protector, confident her only friend and best friend never becoming more as they got older, through Kitty's insecurities and self doubts or the ability to say how she feels.
I can't say I liked Kitty's character she was weak with no confidence, no voice even when being bullied at school and by Jackson's brother and also their friend Julia, Kitty never once defended herself or spoke her mind, Kitty was a frustrating character to follow.
Jackson however knows what he wants and it's always been Kitty, Jackson goes from a boy to a man in love and even when Kitty left, the hole in his heart never filled.
Jackson is a good story told in dual pov's that keeps you in suspense as you read, I wanted to know what kept Kitty away for two years, what happened? I enjoyed the wanting to know and the shocking twists that evolved.
Jackson is a great read that kept me on the edge flipping pages wanting to get to the secrets behind the words and thankfully it did eventually lead to a well deserved hea.
